The high-profile violence against Black Americans during interactions with police continue to occur. When it occurs in our local communities, youth may be directly impacted. Increasingly, the trauma has expanded across the country with social media and news coverage. Either way, part of our role as supportive youth development professionals is to help youth to process these events, their emotional reactions to them, and to empower them to respond if they choose to. We’ve pulled together a list of ClubX Blog posts and other BGCA resources that will support these conversations with youth, particularly youth of color. This list will continue to be updated.

We will continue to update this list as new resources are developed. To stay up-to-date with the most current information from the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Youth Development team, follow us on Facebook.
